Best of both worlds.
MTB and road.
Retro and modern.
Steel and carbon.

This is my favourite bike for road use.
In my erea we have a lot of bicycle path through the forrest.
They are bumpy and a combination of tarmac, gravel, and dirt.
Not the ideal roads for a road bike, but not rough enough for a MTB.
So I build this, and it is perfect for these conditions.
Frame is a Jamis Coda Reynolds 531 from '99.
Wheels, forks, seat, post, handlebars, stem are modern.
Frame and drivetrain are retro. mix of M737/9

I did have the Mungo on before, but my wrists don't get used to a road handlebar after 20+ years of mtb riding. :D
